Windows 8 Tablet: Metro UI, Ribbon, Charm and a Fan

Windows 8 Tablet: Metro UI, Ribbon, Charm and a fan to make the tablet cool (via thisismynext).

 


A fan in a tablet? Was it because of a power-hungry CPU or a power-hungry Windows 8? Regardless of the reasons, it creates a bad user experience. 

And, Microsoft really needs an alternate UI for Windows 8. The current Windows 8 UI is atrocious. How can Microsoft expect people to spend hours with the tablet each day with a UI like that?

The UI itself puts Windows 8 tablets at a disadvantage compared to iPad, Android tablets and even Blackberry Playbook.
